Bora Group's story

Eliza is a dynamic entrepreneur and a member of the business group Bora. She is around 57 years old, a widow, and the mother of 4 children, some of whom have their own households. The customer sells clothes (pagnes, highly colourful and decorative West African clothing). She sets up her merchandise at the Virunga central market. She started her business with her own funds, received from her eldest daughter and has been in business for over 12 years. This new loan will allow her to buy new merchandise (6 sets of pagnes). She also aims to increase her business and to spend the rest of her life in peace. The customer warmly pays tribute to the initiative of the Hekima microcredit program and its actions dedicated to poor, non-bankable women.
